America considering military options against Iran, says top US military officer

Agence France Press (AFP)

WASHINGTON: Suspicious of Iran’s nuclear capacity, the US is weighing military options in the face of Tehran’s announcement it had a nuclear power plant up and running, the top US military officer said Sunday.

“We’ve actually been thinking about military options for a significant period of time,” Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff said in an interview with CNN.

Mullen said that he doesn’t believe Iran’s nuclear plant is for civilian use “for a second.”

“In fact, the information and intelligence that I’ve seen speak very specifically to the contrary. Iran is still very much on a path to be able to develop nuclear weapons, including weaponizing them, putting them on a missile and being able to use them,” he said.

Mullen said the United States was focused on dialogue and engagement about Iran’s nuclear ambitions, but “in a realistic way.”

“They’ve got a history of gamesmanship that certainly doesn’t include closing on significant steps to indicate to the international community that they’re not doing this,” he said.
